Gooner LOVES Clarissa.
Almost EVERY picture ended with Gooner blurry and Clarissa clear.
It is what it is.
I HAVE found that friendship changes once you have a little one. Conversations are interrupted with crying and plans are made AROUND naps. It is just different and I appreciate the friends that embrace my life changes. I’ve also realized that some friendships are greatly damaged due to improper parenting. I make mistakes. I’m not perfect BUT if you have children that are ill behaved, chances are I don’t want to hang out with you. I think it is ridiculous when bad behaviour is allowed because the child is “strong willed.” Um, Gooner is strong willed and has consequences to hitting, biting, disobedience… Stop making excuses and DEAL with your child. Also, when we talk on the phone I don’t want to hear your child throwing a fit, just like you don’t want to hear mine freaking out. I feel that if this happens we can schedule an alternate phone date. I don’t want to hear you say to your child NO, NO, NO and then “YES, just go watch your show and let Mommy talk on the phone. Ok sweetheart?” We all have moments of weakness, but this is why when we hang out your daughter is hitting Gooner and won’t listen to you… bah. So folks, how should I handle this? Do I let the friendship fizzle and fade or do I fight to keep it alive and hope I don’t have to see her children often?
